One Forever21 Floral Cutout Shift Dress, 3 Different Looks

August 3, 2009 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

The following is a guest post by Sydne from thinkthrufashion:  

Picture 27This cotton floral cutout shift dress was one of those Forever 21 finds that I could not believe was under 30 bucks. Doesn’t it look more like it cost $100? So even though it was a tad big on me I had to have it. I actually like the looser fit for summer since it keeps me cool. I wore look #1 to work recently and got beaucoup compliments but my favorite way to wear this dress is how I styled it in look #2. The shapeless fit and the statement necklace have a retro 60s vibe.

1. Forever 21 cardigan, Ann Taylor belt, vintage brooch, Forever 21 studded sandals
2. Forever 21 necklace, lia sophia bracelet, Manolo Blahnik d’Orsays
3. Gap jean jacket, Urban Outfitters locket necklace, Nocona boots

Let’s make this very clear: I don’t think there’s anything wrong with Jessica Biel’s outfit (other than the out of place denim bag).  But I couldn’t overcome the desire to freshen up her look to create a more airy, summertime look.  Hope you like it!

Celebrity Redo: Kate Bosworth

June 3, 2009 by  
Filed under Celebrity Redo

 Here’s the deal: It’s not that I don’t like Kate Bosworth’s look (it is kinda Bohemian cool), it’s just that the colors don’t do anything for her and it definitely would not be my first choice for Summer wear.  I can see someone wearing booties with a Summer dress, but Kate’s wearing a tee, vest, scarf and booties.  For the redo, I decided to swap out the gray tee for a white tank and instead of the booties I added a pair of woven platforms.  The pieces I chose will allow you to easily mix and match them with other  Summer essentials (like the tank with shorts or the vest with dresses).
